Spotlight | Tony Moly Cat Chu Wink Tony Tint.

Not too long ago, I purchased this bottle of Cat Chu Wink Tony Tint from Tony Moly. It's the upgraded version of the good old Tony Tint, which I have heralded as 'the best liquid blush' in one of my earlier blog posts. The 'upgraded' version takes the spotlight on my blog today, as I want to show you a different shade plus the new packaging, and how I use it to create the 'gradient effect' on my lips.
Meow! Cat Chu Wink Tony Tint!
Here's how the Cat Chu Wink Tony Tint looks like. The cat-face twist up cap (complete with cat ears) sure adds cuteness to this otherwise ordinary plastic bottle. For reference, here's how the old packaging looks like. Aside from the kitty head, you'll notice that the new bottle has a wider and rounder base. Kinda looks like a cat sitting up straight.
Old vs new. 
I also went for a different shade this time around. Instead of my usual #1 Cherry Pink, I chose #2 Red
#2 Red.
It's a vivid shade of red - almost blood-like, that looks quite intimidating when you look straight at the bottle. It comes with a doe-foot applicator that's rather flat in shape and has a rounded, not pointed, tip. I also noticed that this one has a mild rosy scent, whereas its predecessor had none. (In other words, the old one is unscented.)

Now here's how the product looks like when swatched on the skin.
Bloody red! :)
It's a liquid tint so expect the formulation to be watery, but surprise! It's not runny, as you can see in the swatch above. The color is buildable, and the pigmentation is just crazy! And I mean that in a positive way. Just a few dots would be enough to produce a vibrant color on your lips or cheeks. A word of caution, though. This product dries pretty fast, so if you're planning to use it on your cheeks, be sure to blend as quickly as possible. Otherwise, you'll get red dots on your face, haha. :)

Here's how the Cat Chu Wink Tony Tint looks like when worn. The color on my cheeks lasted the entire day; on my lips it lasted for about four to five hours with a bit of eating and drinking.

Products used:
FACE: The Face Shop Velvet Skin Primer, Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura BB Cream,
Missha Under Eye Brightener, Etude House Any Cushion.

Ever Bilena Eyebrow Liner.
CHEEKS: Tony Moly Cat Chu Wink Tony Tint.
LIPS: EOS Lip Balm in Vanilla Nonsense, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan,
Tony Moly Cat Chu Wink Tony Tint, MAC Clear Lip Gel.
What I love:
- Cute packaging.
- Highly pigmented.
- Buildable color.
- Just a little goes a long way.
- Long-lasting.
- Can be used on the cheek and lips.
- Affordable price. (Php 248 for this 10ml bottle.)

What you might not like:
- It dries quickly, so you have to blend it as quickly as possible.
- If you're using this as a cheek tint, expect stains on your fingers.

And as promised, here's a quick tutorial on how to achieve the 'gradient lips'. Click on the image to enlarge!
1. Moisturize your lips with a lip balm.
2. Apply pink lipstick on the outer part of your lips.
3. Dot the lip tint on the center of your lips.
4. Smooth with a clear lip gloss.

At this point, I can still say that regardless of the new packaging and seemingly new formulation, Tony Moly's (as in this Cat Chu Wink Tony Tint) is still the best liquid blush for me. And it's also my favorite lip tint to work with when it comes to creating gradient lips!

I liked the gradient lips tutorial :D Have always been wondering how they did that with the Tony Moly tint. I do like the Cherry Pink better for myself, though.

Suck a cutie packaging! <3 It's more appealing than the latter and I love how it gives a natural flush on your lips. Perfect for everyday use !

Very cute bottle! I've never heard of liquid blush and had no idea you could use it on lips. It looks great on you, though!

I never really use tint on my cheeks, just my lips. I can never seem to get it to apply evenly on my cheeks! I've tried using my fingers and a stippling brush, but I guess I just need more practice.

This is too cute though and I always see it around! I think I'll give it a try!

Animetric said...

I have this but I have not tried it as a blush! I tried doing the gradient technique you posted but I couldn't really achieve the desired effect LOL.

Very pretty shade! I cannot wear too many reds, but this might be perfect.

It's been so long since I last used a lip and cheek tint! This seems really good though! The packaging looks sooooo cute, and that pigmentation is insane! <3

Will definitely check this out, and if magustuhan ko, I might use this regularly instead of separate blusher and lipstick. Would love to try that gradient lips effect too! <3

HA! Cute container, I would have never known that was blush! That color looks great on you!

Kath Rivera said...

Love cheek tints din before pero nagsawa na ko. I've tried this too and maganda. Na phase out na yung fave cheek tint ko which is mistine.

nicquee said...

That shade is sure bloody!

I am someone who thinks who cannot apply lipstick that is why I am always on the lookout for easy to apply lip color. But since you said it dries really fast, maybe this one's not for me.

It looks good on you though.
